While I was checking out the Skin79 BB cream display at Watsons today, I happened to see the new Lúcido-L Hair Treatment Water (S$11.90). With the packaging a soothing shade of blue much like the Neutrogena Hydro Boost range, its display caught my eye.
My hair had been caught in the rain and it dried slightly frizzy while I was in an air-conditioned mall. My interest was piqued with its promises to soften hair and ease the frizzies, so I got a friend to spritz the product on me. To my pleasant surprise, my hair felt soft and pliable shortly after. I was quite thrilled because I’d resigned myself to having straggly and frizzy hair for the day, thanks to the rain. I like that the light mist made my hair feel smooth and that it’s not sticky – a good feature, considering that it’s a non-rinse product. It also has the classic floral Lúcidol-L scent that I’m familiar with.
According to the label on the bottle, this leave-in hair product not only conditions hair, it also pre-styles hair with its ingredients that include hyaluronic acid, a powerful humectant.
Known quaintly in Japlish as an ‘out of bath treatment’, there’s also an essence version (S$13.90), a serum which is better suited for dry and damaged hair.
A popular Japanese haircare brand with a vivacious image, Lúcidol-L* has made an impression on me with its light yet effective products. I’ve been using the hairspray and the waxes and like that they help to style and hold hair well without feeling gunky. Best of all, they wash out easily. :) The lightness of the Hair Treatment Water seems to live up to these characteristics!
* The ‘L’ at the end denotes ‘Ladies’ and indicates that the line caters to women. There’s also a Lúcido line for men.
